‘Veganism’ and ‘Plant-Based’, aren’t words that we typically associate with creps though Adidas and Reebok’s most recent releases suggest that maybe we should? 

In championing conscious fashion, Adidas re-imagined their original Stan Smiths while Reebok created high performance shoes that represent those exact principles, embracing the many ways of vegan living that stretch beyond diet.

  • By definition, Veganism stands for, "A philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude- as far as is possible and practicable- all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment." - The Vegan Society

à la carte 🍏

Adidas teamed up with Stella McCartney for the second time to reinvent the iconic Stan Smiths making them entirely vegan. The trainers are constructed with materials such as synthetic leather and an animal-free alternative glue which replaced the usual glue. 

The Adidas x Stella McCartney Stan Smiths look identical to the original pair, though this version features multi-coloured laces and tiny punched out stars in rainbow shades down the side rather than the usual 3 stripes. Downside? It’s pricey. $$$$

Additionally, Reebok released it’s first ever plant-based performance shoes, 'Forever Floatride GROW', made out of castor bean oil, eucalyptus tree, algae, and natural rubber. 

Reebok were able to achieve their sustainability goals by using natural materials to create the trainers without compromising on its high performance standard.

Sustainability is a word that has been on the lips of designers hoping to push for more ethical options on the market, like Adidas x Parley’s fight for the oceans. In response to the current climate crisis, designers have cleverly come up with innovative ways to reduce harmful waste on the planet, for instance by upcycling. 

Upcycled fashion refers to the process of reworking old materials to produce something unique and of higher value. Upcycled garments can look so unusual to the eye but it’s one-of-a-kind concept and design is extremely clever. *chef kiss* 😜

In line with this, HypeBae recently interviewed U.S. based designer, @friskmegood and we’re here to reiterate that you NEED to be following this babe. On Depop, Cierra Boyd sells her unique crep corsets made from thrifted Nike AF1’s and New Balance trainers. Cierra told HypeBae, “upcycling fashion is my passion because it gives me the opportunity to create art that is one-of-a-kind.”
